"Spicy, peppery, charred oak aromas meet rich blackberry and boysenberry flavors in this expressive, full-bodied and dry wine. It's rather heavy on the oak, which serves to add complexity and firm tannin, keeping it well-structured through the spicy finish." (WE)

Winery Notes:
The color is dark and as intense as the wine. Fresh cran-berries and plum co-mingle with tobacco and all spice on the nose. The palate is of dried herbs, sour cherries, and savory oak notes. The intensity and lingering finish of this wine is a direct result of the intense sunlight where this Barbera is grown.
